Well, I've done all of that and finally gave up on the Avery approach ($40 later!). I made a high quality master on regular paper and had that professionally printed on card stock and cut. The cost was $1.75 per sheet (10 cards per sheet) and a cut cost of $15.00 per lot of sheets). -------- We have tried cutting cards before, by our selves, and I find that it does not give the cards the degree of conformity that I was looking for (plus it takes our time and I'd rather spend $15 bucks per lot to not have to deal with it). We had a stack of 100 cards within two hours and we were able to take them to the meet & great that evening - they went over "Big Time" ! The responses we heard were "WOW", "Cool" , etc. ---- We even hooked with two couples (but that is another story!).

Ok, we played around with the cards and adobe and here are our best tips......Download Adobe 8.0.......click print and unclick the AUTO ROTATE AND CENTER box......Change PAGE SCALING TO NONE.....print a sheet and it will fit exact. It took us a while to figure it out but they look great now.

I know it may sound lame! But we have always had the same problem. Getting the print to line up on store bought business card stock was a chore. So we just went out and bought regular card stock paper and printed them out on that and used a paper cutter to cut them out ourself. You can also get colored card stock! We have a DJ/KJ business and this seemed the easiest way to go for us!

Like others, we've been thinking about cards too. What a wonderful feature. And a very easy to use format too. We'll be printing up our cards as soon as we get the paper. Thanks so much.

Outstanding benefit for the membership! K and I really appreciate your going to the effort to allow us to do this. We've wanted cards for so long and here they are for free!

Finally bought some card stock and they print well on our Canon.

Also noticed you have reformatted at least one of the styles with additional lines for personal info and added a larger pic...Thanks!

The problem with computers and printers is that they are all a bit different. At our office, the cards print perfect on an HP 4600 Printer. At my home, they print outside the lines, on and HP 3600 Printer. What a pain. I was able to change a few print settings and get them to print perfect at home too.

Try to make sure you're getting a raw print, no borders, margins, resize.... Version 8 of Adobe reader seems to work better. Ask the kinkos people for help and be sure to do a test print on plain paper, then check the alignment prior to printing on the card stock.

Hi, I think that your Card design tool is a fabulous idea! In fact, I was so enthused about it, that this morning, my wife and I picked out a card design, customized it and saved it to a CD ROM (after printing a proof copy on our home printer). I then grabbed the CD ROM and my proof copy and headed out the door. First stop was Office Depot – there I bought a package of Avery-8879 Business Card stock (the exact type recommended in you card design window). Next stop was at Kinko’s’ to use their color printer. ----------

At Kinko’s, I loaded my CD, which contained the .pdf file generated by your software and up popped the preview of the ten card exactly as how it appeared from my home printed proof copy. Kinko’s computer was running Adobe v 7.0. Everything was going remarkably well – So I took one sheet of my Avery-8879 card stock and slipped it into the printer. After checking the printer settings regarding magnification, centering and various other offsets, I pushed the Print button. The printer spit out a very handsome looking set of cards – Wonderfull bright colors, great looking very professional glossy cards. --------------

Then I looked closer. The individual cards were not aligned in the card template! The printer was printing outside the Avery card boundaries. Cards printed at the top of the page were better then the cards at the bottom of the page (where the cut of the card stock almost divided the printed image in half. --------------

I need some help! We are going to a meet & greet tomorrow evening and I wanted to have a set of cards to hand out to the crowd and really dazzle them. ------------

How can I fix this problem?? -------------

Bye for now, Tom of M&T
